In Matrei winter shows itself from the most beautiful sides
Despite ongoing modernization, Matrei has maintained its character as a gentle tourist resort. Here you can combine great fun on the slopes in the Großglockner ski resort and the quiet and relaxed winter idyll.
Winter is the most sensual season in the National Park Hohe Tauern Osttirol
The crunchy snow under your feet, the sun that makes the snowy winter forest sparkle. The breathtaking tranquility of snowy nature decelerates, grounds and gives a view of the essential things in life. Exploring nature on walks, getting out of breath doing winter sports, gaining strength at the sight of the snow-covered mountain landscape.
On the guided tours you could easily get to see free living animals of the alpine area. And after a day in nature – you come home! No better time to enjoy the abundance of alpine coziness in one of the tourist accommodations of the National Park. Hosts dedicated to nature, sustainability and their region: the homely feeling of the heated tiled stove, fireside or open fire. The smell of spicy tea, Zelten (typical Tyrolean gingerbread) or freshly baked cookies. A warm blanket and the book that you have been wanting to read for months. The cozy “Stube” – time for family, friends and yourself.
Maybe you do not want to spend your days on the slopes only?
Staying at Haus Marina you can also go for exciting leisure activities or spend your time in relaxing pastimes: for example, sledding on the illuminated sledge run. The “Würfele Hütte” in Virgental is very popular among locals and a perfect late afternoon activity. What about a fun sledge ride with your family?
